Continuing to provide handloaders with accurate and up-to-date information for well over a century now, Lyman has announced the release of their new 51st edition reloading handbook. The Lyman 51st edition reloading handbook is the second Lyman manual that is full-color. Let’s see what’s new in this handbook.
Lyman @ TFB:
- NEW Lyman AR Reloading Handbook, 2nd Edition
- Lyman Products Mark 7 Evolution 10-Stage Manual Reloading Machine & Autodrive
- Lyman Acquires Mark 7 Reloading
- [SHOT 2019] Lyman – New Reloading, Shooting Mats, & More

As expected from a new reloading manual, the Lyman 51st edition reloading handbook includes data for several new cartridges that could not be found in the previous edition. The new cartridges added to the 51st handbook include the .224 Valkyrie, 22 Nosler, 24 Nosler, 6mm ARC, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 6.5 Weatherby RPM, 6.8 Western, .300 PRC, and more. Compared to reloading manuals published by projectile and propellant manufacturers whose data is dedicated to their products, Lyman reloading handbooks include a wide range of bullet and powder data. In the Lyman 51st edition reloading handbook, you can find data for bullets made by Barnes, Berger, Hornady, Lapua, Sierra, Speer, Swift, and Winchester as well as cast bullet reloading information. The powder charge data includes information on propellants made by Accurate, Alliant, Hodgdon, IMR, Norma, Ramshot, VihtaVuori, and Winchester. Also, new in the latest Lyman reloading manual are articles dedicated to loading ammunition on progressive presses added to the information on single station and turret press reloading.
